HELLO down there!

So by the time this is posted, I'll be way up here...


...flying to my brother's in Omaha, NE....and then he and I are road trippin' to Illinois to get a real quick visit in with our mom.

Mom is going in for  major back surgery on August 28.  (*Would  you be so kind to add her to your prayer lists?*)

Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Will indeed be praying, Patty... And I was wondering...did your mother get any epidural injections, and did they help? My mom was recently diagnosed and just had her first injection. Her doctor gave her the option of trying three more, or having surgery. She has had some relief, but it has only been two weeks...

    Anyway, enjoy your visit and I will be praying for you all, dear friend! : )

    1. Billie Jo, yes. But she had at least half dozen over the past two years. I have a bil who's an anesthesiologist. He works with pain management and helped her. The shots helped, but were temporary. They bought her time. She's in so much pain now, this was her last resort. The surgeon said he expects her to be walking one mile when she's fully recovered. Which seems miraculous to us! Her surgeon is in Chicago and her surgery will be @ Rush Hospital. I'll keep y'all up with details.

    2. Your mom should feel the full effects of relief after the series of three.

    3. Oh thanks so much Patty...we are wondering about just going ahead with the surgery. It is awful to see them in pain, isn't it? Thanks so much for sharing your experience...this is all so new to us, and I think my mom would like to go ahead with the surgery sooner than later.

      Prayers and hugs, dear friend. Enjoy your visit. : )
